Library Reopening Policies & Procedures: Home

Documents the Library policies for services and handling materials to address COVID-19 concerns

Introduction

Union County College Libraries are committed to providing services to students. This resource guide documents the policies and procedures put in place in an effort to have a safe work environment while being available both remotely and on campus to address students needs. We look forward to welcoming students back to campus.

As libraries reopen their physical spaces, patrons can anticipate some changes, such as restrictions on the number of people inside the building, additional cleaning and disinfecting procedures, reduced number of public computers to support physical distancing, and use of masks.
